about

Kyle Hall is my awesome bud that I met a while ago, back in June of 2013, and he ended up playing some acoustic shows in Youngstown and also some shows with Kitten Crisis and Toopin. Kyle Hall is a really amazing person and I'm so grateful to be putting out a split with him -- if you ever get the chance, go to one of his shows and say hello!

Track Name: Human Petting Zoo - Carlisle
When I was very young, my neighbor would give me Klondike bars
I would climb in the tree that someone had planted in my backyard
Everything had felt infinite, and I know it sounds cliche
But i have to admit it sometimes I wish I could still feel that way

But no one was home, yeah everyone was gone
And I never went back because I knew all along
That you were never coming home, I knew it from the start
I was only five years old, but I was pretty smart
And you were gone for good, yeah I was pretty smart
and I knew you were gone for good

When I was a little bit older, I heard that my neighbor had passed away
A few years later I had a Klondike and it didn't taste the same
I moved away from the house I lived in when I was five years old
I was never coming back but I could see, that you were growing old
Track Name: Human Petting Zoo - The Lines
You make me love the lines on my stomach when I've been slouching for too long, the lines, the lines
The lines that make the states, the ones that we have yet to see, places that aren't as beautiful if you're not next to me, the lines, the lines
You make me love the way that my hair flips out and the way that my eyelids are different sizes, and my eyes are different colors
You make me love myself, the thing I thought I would never do, but now I do, and I love you too, the lines

You make me love the lines that we must wait in, every time that we buy something but I don't mind, cause it gives me time to talk with you
And I'll wait in line with you for as long as we have to

And I was only 9 when she said, "You still have baby fat? I don't have mine." I don't have mine
And I was only 13 when he said, "Your BMI is far too high" Far too high.

You make me love the lines on my stomach when I've been slouching for too long, the lines that make the states, the places we belong, you make me love the way that my hair flips out and the way that my eyelids are different sizes, and my eyes are different colors, you make me love myself, the thing I thought I would never do, but now I do, and I love you too.
Track Name: Human Petting Zoo - No Words
Tell me how do you feel, is your pain oh so real, has someone amputated your leg or drowned you in the nearest lake
Tell me what can I do, how can I help you, customer service is over there, but I don't think they can help you there

What can I say? It's a beautiful fucking day, the sun is shining and burning my arms, someone please shut off the smoke alarms
It'll be okay, I know there's bills to pay, but what's more important a house or a home, and I won't let you feel alone
Track Name: Human Petting Zoo - Usually (Yr Next To Me)
I wish I could say that I like being this way
But I still have my days when I do

But usually, I can't sleep, usually, I can't breathe
When the plans get changed
And usually, I can't see, usually, I get angsty
When you correct me on something that I say
I can't help that I am this way

I wish I could fall into a well
and stay there til I feel like I can speak

But usually, I'm crying, usually, I'm wishing
That you were sitting next to me
Cause usually I don't worry, usually I'm better off
When you're just next to me
When you're just next to me

I wish I could say that I like being this way
But I still have my days when I do
But usually, you're next to me, usually you help me to believe
That I am worth this life we're living
And usually you make me feel like I'm the person
I've always wanted to be
Track Name: Human Petting Zoo - Birthdays R Tuff
You know I've been feeling guilty lately
And I've been hoping that you've forgotten about
All the things we talked about
On your birthday I had a mixed CD and drawing
That I had forgotten to give you on that day

So I never gave you anything and it's really starting to bug me

You know it's really not that easy to bring something like that up
I can't just give you all the things I have that I should've given you
two months ago because, if I did, you might think I'm a forgetful jerk
But I am

So I guess you'll never know what I got you for your birthday
And it's gonna stay that way until the next holiday
Track Name: Human Petting Zoo - Anxiety Song pt 2
When I open up my mouth all this bullshit comes out, and I drown
When I try to say what I wanna say it never comes out right
I always end up hurting feelings or end up in a fight

I can't help but get mad at myself when everything goes wrong
The things I say live in the back of my brain and I start to feel withdrawn
But at least I know that it's not always my fault
And I start to feel okay once and for all

The times I say things the right way are the times I feel the best
I don't know what it's like to get a home run but I swear to god,
it's not as good as this
When I try to say what I wanna say, and it comes out perfectly
You better watch out, cause I'm on top of the world
And I don't plan to leave

And I can't help but get mad at myself, in the back of my mind
When I try to say what I wanna say and it never comes out right
But at least I know that it's not always my fault
And I start to feel okay once and for all

I can't help but get mad at myself when everything goes wrong
The things I say live in the back of my brain and I start to feel withdrawn
But at least I know that it's not always my fault
And I start to feel okay, I start to feel okay once and for all
